Cultivation and Propagation: Mammillaria haageana subs. Exposition: Full sun to light shade. Watering: Water regularly in summer but do not over-water. Keep dry in winter.
Growing tips: It is better that they be repotted regularly. Repotting will increase the number and size of stems, and will increase the number of flowers produced. Repot yearly until it reaches about 3 cm in size, then every two or three years will suffice. Repotting is best done at the end of winter, but it can be done at other time, too. Do not water for a couple of weeks after repotting, in order to reduce risk of root rot via broken roots.
Propagation: Seeds or offsets if available. Mammillaria haageana subs. Purpus D. Garcia Tecamachalco, Puebla, Mexico.
